Northeast PHP 2013

Pragmatic API Development

Creating an API for your web application opens up doors. Either doors to the outside world or even just between teams. This talk covers principals and best practices for real-world API development. The focus is on RESTful API with PHP and answers some common questions such as "What is REST?", "How do I version my API?", "How do I convince my CEO and investors that we need an API?" and "What is the meaning of life?" (spoiler: it's 42).

I have given several talks on API development at various conferences and have decided to break out the key points into there own page rather than have it embedded in each.
